    Re: How is the Gillette/Proctor & Gamble boycott doing in your neck of the woods?

    So with extreme reluctance I'm stuck to this POS company. They are, ATM, the only razors which I can use.
    The effect one person has on Gillette can't be measured. Long as you shun other P & G product's we're fine.

    When I was a kid Gillette shaving products took up three quarters of the space in the supermarket isle. It wasn't even close; the market was there's. How the mighty have fallen.
    Every day I make the world a little bit worse.

    For me it isn't about hurting Gillette or P & G, it is about my own self respect. In all my years in retail I never treated a customer like that and I will not tolerate any company treating me like that. I stopped using Gillette when they came out with their Mach 3. It was too expensive and it gave a poor shave. I went online looking for a better solution. I found that a double edged razor and shaving soap gave me a better shave and made shaving an enjoyable experience. It also freed me from being tied to any single company. I get control of a part of my life back.

    I know I'm changing the topic but don't want to miss the opportunity to ask a Ukrainian about what's really going on there. Here in the US we get our news very filtered and slanted and I never know where to look for legit info about other regions of the world. I trust members on here, so I'm curious is war looming over there and how do Ukrainian people feel about the US and Biden?

    Sorry, for my late reply and thank you for your interest.
    US news (both left- and right-wing) about the situation in my country are fairly accurate, save for some misunderstandings due to cultural differences or journalists slacking.
    The Russians are amassing forces around the border, attacks in the Donbass have increased. Overall things don't look too good for us, and by saying that I mean I'm in the process of packing my emergency backpack for the time when I have to go defend the country. But we are going to fight, if we are to go down the russkies are coming with.
    The Ukrainian people like the United States and appreciate US support during these dark times very much. Generally, Ukraine is a pretty US-friendly country and Americans who visit seem to have a pretty good time.
    As for politics, i.e Trump vs. Biden/Republicans vs Democrats, most Ukrainians just don't know enough about the US politics to have an opinion, American political system is hugely different from the Ukrainian one, so 99% of the people don't know a whole lot about it.
    If you've got any more questions, I'll be more than happy to answer them, let me know.

    Society needs men to die for the safety and security of women and gynocentric society.

    It sounds like shit is going to hit the fan soon, so instead of packing your bag to fight, pack your bag to travel and go backpack now, get out, anywhere out of the country and well out of the killing fields. Come to South-East Asia and be treated like a king. You can teach to earn money and foreign teachers are in high demand and get paid well.

    Remember the white feather movement in UK. Women will shame men so they go die in the thousands and then demand unearned rights and privileges for themselves. In France, their traitorous women would immediately go fuck the ones who killed their men. It's not your circus. Let women go fight and die. Your life is precious and you don't owe gynocentric society anything. Don't be an expandable male, don't be a martyr.
